Only Two Course Repeats Allowed!

Effective this fall, there’s a new policy with regard to how many times you are allowed to retake a course at Lehigh.

The new policy is that you may repeat a course only twice -- a total of three attempts.  Withdrawal from a course counts as an attempt.

If you wish to repeat a course for a fourth time, you would need approval from the Standing of Students Committee (SOS).   As with any SOS petition, approval is not guaranteed.

If you have any questions about this policy and how it may relate to your academic plan, please email or meet with your academic advisor.  DO NOT DELAY.

If you have questions about the SOS Committee and petition process, please stop by or call the CBE Undergraduate Programs Office.  We are open from 8:15 am to 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday, except for University holidays.
